Simply Sublime Tomato Sauce

March 23, 2015


Author Notes: Make this sauce only when you have truly ripe tomatoes and an excellent olive oil on hand. Because the sauce only has three ingredients, each one needs to be the best you can find.

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Place a pound of pasta (preferably spaghetti) into boiling water, stir, and bring back to a boil.
  2. Bring the sauce up to a simmer uncovered and season with sea salt to taste (you may need to add more). When the pasta is 1 minute from being done, scoop 3/4 of a coffee mug full of the pasta water and pour into the sauce. Bring the sauce back to a strong simmer and drizzle in remaining olive oil. Drain pasta well and scoop into the sauce. Turn and coat evenly, allowing the pasta to absorb the sauce. Let stand for 1 minute.
